CICANT has joined the NEM-Initiative and is now a NEM member
What is NEM?
The NEM Initiative (New European Media Initiative) was established as one of the European Technology Platform under the Seventh Framework Programme, aiming at fostering the convergence between consumer electronics, broadcasting and telecoms in order to develop the emerging business sector of networked and electronic media.
The European Union has set important growth targets for the 2014-2020 programming period.
Among these, those most relevant to our project are those related to raising the employment rate in a Europe marked by the severe economic situation in which it fell at the end of the first 10 years of the new millennium. In this regard, the Commission presented “the agenda for new skills and jobs”, where the aim is to lay the foundations for modernizing labour markets and increase employment levels.
The project addresses the need to raise adult ICT competences in current online reality. The digital revolution is changing the way Europeans live, work and learn. It offers great opportunities, but is associated with threats. There are more and more ICT trainings, but they usually concern technicalities: how to operate a computer, set up an e-mail account, restore a file from the recycle bin, etc.
